Aamir Khan’s 5 Best Comedic Roles You Need To Watch On His Birthday

The guy who doesn’t grace any awards with his presence, Mr. Perfectionist – need we say more? Yes, it is none other than Aamir Khan, the superstar who has enthralled us with his impeccable acting and superb films. Aamir Khan is best known for choosing films from various genres, from action to romance, with films like Sarfarosh and Raja Hindustani to his credit. With blockbusters like Lagaan and Rang De Basanti to his name, there is no stopping this man, who, at 56, still gives youngsters a run for their money. As we celebrate Aamir’s life, let’s look at some of his best comedic roles that have us falling in love with him all over again.  

1. 3 Idiots

No other 44-year-old can pull off playing a college kid, but Aamir is definitely the exception to the rule. Playing a highly intelligent and creative student, he changes the lives of his two friends Raju (Sharman Joshi) and Farhan (R.Madhavan) as they balance college, life, expectation, peer pressure and a disciplinarian Dean. When Aamir is not spewing gyaan to his friends about living life to the fullest, he can be seen playing pranks on others, and generally creating havoc. 

2.  Dil Chahta Hai

3 different friends, and 3 different ways to live a life. While Dil Chahta Hai will always be known as a friendship centric movie, we cannot help but applaud Aamir’s subtle comic character in the movie that, even after going through life-altering situations, comes out of it with his humour attached.

3. Andaz Apna Apna

A story of two losers Amar (Aamir Khan) and Prem (Salman Khan) who compete with each other to win the affections of an heiress for easy money, this film is a cult classic. Although it bombed at the box office, the slapstick comedy and impeccable comedic timings of the actors have gained it the topmost place in every cinephile’s heart. Aamir is too good in this film, and his comedic acting is all thanks to a complete surrender to his art.

4. PK 

An alien (Aamir Khan) lands on Earth, and hilarity ensues. Aamir almost looks like he has fallen from outer space, and his mannerisms and questions never make us fail to laugh during the entire movie. From his innocent questions to straight answers that have everyone gobsmacked, PK won the hearts of millions around.  

5. Ishq

Aamir’s skills are at their best in Ishq, where comedy, action and romance come together to give us a great film. As always, Aamir is at his best as he changes emotions after emotions while making both Juhi Chawla and us laugh at his antics. The famous ‘fake knife’ scene is forever etched in our minds, all thanks to Aamir’s memorable acting.
